My son will be 6 in Oct. and he has been extremely picky and it has affected his bowels to the point where he was walking in an odd manner. I took him to the DR. to make sure he didn't have a pulled muscle or something, well it turned out his bowels were so backed up it was causing him to walk in an odd way.
She said to stay away from apple juice because of the pectin, it is a binder..and to use benefiber in whatever I can get him to eat or drink. So I do make alot of benefiber brownies and use it in his drinks...but he still has hard stools. What else can I do?
you should limit dairy and maybe talk to your doctor about doing a once daily does of laxative. i give my daughter 2 teaspoons of miralax ever day and that is the only thing that completely gets rid of her constipation. she is supper picky also and so it is hard to get her to eat much fiber. and he may not like veggies or fruit much but have you tried breads with veggies or fruit in them. banana bread, zucchini bread, pumpkin bread and there are many others.
